20 years of experience
Solution oriented

Unresolved experiences and feelings can influence you in many ways, affecting your emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual well being. It can become difficult to develop healthy relationships, improve life situations, and take good care of yourself. Over the past 20 years, I have worked in a variety of treatment settings including inpatient/outpatient mental health and substance abuse. I offer a safe, nonjudgmental, and empowering environment to allow full expression and resolution of feelings and thoughts. Treatment is tailored to your specific needs, and is paced at a level in which you feel comfortable. I hope to assist you on your path to develop lifelong changes, and become the person you want to be.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Our first session together will include a psychosocial assessment to determine your needs and goals, as well as a bit of history and patterns you have developed.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

My treatment methods are tailored to your particular needs. I use a collaborative, strengths based approach including CBT, psychodynamic, DBT, etc. I incorporate ways you can use your support system, community resources, and coping skills to change and improve the life you envision.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Having overcome life changing issues of my own, my personal and professional background have given me the resources to help clients do the same. My passion to help others realize their potential, prompted me to empower myself through education and training. I hope to assist you in living a purposeful and meaningful life.
